It’s completely up to you how wild you go with the decorations. Some people like to go overboard and crazy with their decorations. For others, a few simple balloons purchased from a balloon shop online and streamers is more than enough to keep the kids happy. It can seem like a big task, but having a theme, even if it is just a colour, can be a great place to start. You don’t even have to buy your decorations, you can have fun making custom decorations for the big day. Pinterest has some great ideas.

Food and the cake

In the children’s minds, the cake is perhaps the most important part of the day. If you’re brilliant in the kitchen, then this is your chance to shine. If not, you can quickly pick up a birthday cake at the local store. It’s always a good idea to match the cake to the birthday theme and make sure you’ve got enough candles. If you plan this part correctly, you’ll see a huge smile on your child's face. Just don’t forget to make a big enough cake to feed the whole party. As for the main food, it’s best to stick to classic party food. Mini sausages, Sandwiches, fruit and plenty of juice will always be a winning combination.


One of the easiest ways to keep the children entertained is with a few games. You can’t go wrong with classic party games like pass the parcel or musical statues. You could also get a pinata or organise games like an egg and spoon race. If you can work the games into the general theme of the party, then that’s great. Again websites like Pinterest will have some great suggestions. You only need to come up with one or two games to keep them busy, and then it’s time for the food. However, depending on the location, your choice may take care of some of the time you have at the party anyway.

Goody bags

Finally, don’t forget about the goody bags that you give out at the end. Send each child home with a little memento of the day. You can throw in a few small toys, a couple of sweets, and a piece of cake. Some bubbles always go down well too. Often the simpler these things are, the better received they are. Also keeping things simple can keep the costs down. At the end of the day, the children don’t mind too much about what's inside, they just love taking one home.

Let’s hope these tips help you when it comes to throwing a kids party.
